should be shut down, each and every one of them.
I dunno, it's not really a big deal is it? If you're using an internet café you're either a povvo whose opinion on computers isn't going to be listened to or a beggar who therefore can't be a chooser.
our service provider's signal is down for some reason.
If you could be choosy you'd use anything but an internet café...
When I called thewarn a povo yesterday I went with one v.
To my mind 'povo' could be pronounced like 'polo' so I put two vs in to express the lack of long 'oh' at the start.
I think I'll stick with my spelling then.
"Oh YOU sir, are in trouble now - DiS will hear of this and they are HARSH. Now give me my inhaler."
But it feels like it'd be wrong if I weren't in this thread spouting of about something or other.
Because it's been mentioned on more than one occasion that I'm a grumpy contrarian or summats when it comes to tech. Probably with decent reason, if I'm being honest.
Eg: I've kinda 'come home' to Google after using http://duckduckgo.com/ for a few months.
Everyone knows that.
I tried to deny it. I failed.
www.google.co.uk, Google Reader and Google Docs ain't loading for me right now.
Everything else on the intertrons is ok (including Gmail, Google News).
...and it's back.
and the guy sat next to me was eating a stinking, dripping burger whilst looking at pictures of underwear models.
I was waiting for my broadband to be hooked up. I had just moved everything into my flat, and it was hot as hell but my hot water wasn't working so I was a bit honking. I also hadn't got any food in so I grabbed a burger on the way there.
Underwear model pics? Yeah, I'm a massive misogynist.
